    maybe it was one of those really little female officers who have no business being a cop who got “assaulted”….any little inadvertant contact with the cops and they’ll call it “assault” yet if the same level of “assault” happens to a civilian they blow it off or treat it like it is….nothing…..its no wonder NOBODY trusts the police…..never believe what the police say unless there is something factual to back it up as they are known liars and will say ANYTHING to support their position.
